The Drama Department is active in many of the Asheville-area theater organizations, including Southern Appalachian Repertory CompanyFlat Rock PlayhouseNorth Carolina Stage Company,  Diana Wortham Theatre, and Asheville Community Theatre.

These theater companies have worked with the Drama Department to co-produce shows; faculty have lent their expertise to design, directing, technical direction and acting; and, students have served as interns and artists.

In addition, our students often work with the next generation interested in learning the ins and outs of theatre and what it is like to be involved in a theatrical production.
